Abstract

This paper presents an approach to the deployment of a live-video service based on streaming technology over an HFC network. This approach covers most of the issues that may arise while putting one of these services into operation, taking into account new aspects such as those oriented to the improvement and prior analysis of the service’s behaviour. An accurate and continuous service analysis can contribute to boost the service’s performance and thus to lead the service to the so called excellence of service. This paper also presents a service architecture specifically designed for HFC networks that takes advantage of the structure of this kind of networks. Furthermore, a complete framework that facilitates most of the tasks that are needed to deploy and manage a live-video service over the internet is presented.
